BTIG appoints Managing Director and Director of Policy Research
BTIG has appointed Isaac Boltansky as a Managing Director and Director of Policy Research. In this newly created role within BTIG’s Research and Strategy division, Boltansky will analyse and forecast how potential policy shifts will impact investors, corporations and other market participants.
He will synergistically work alongside BTIG’s Chief Equity and Derivatives Strategist Julian Emanuel adding to the firm’s macro strategy product and other resources published for clients. Boltansky immediately enhances the firm’s offering and differentiates it by providing comprehensive policy research and analysis. As BTIG continues to grow and invest in new talent, he represents the most recent addition to a research team designed to support the goals of both corporate and institutional investor clients. Notably, the firm has expanded its research division by more than 35 per cent over the last year, emphasising BTIG’s commitment to strengthening its capabilities.
“We look forward to incorporating Isaac’s perspective into the resources the firm provides for clients,” says Scott Kovalik, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of BTIG. “His work will create a framework for clients to better understand how policymakers may impact the overall market and individual sectors. Isaac has great experience and insights. He will help our clients navigate near-term policy changes and offer them a closer look at longer-term structural shifts driven by legislation and regulation.”
Prior to BTIG, Boltansky was the Director of Policy Research at Compass Point Research and Trading, where he spent ten years coordinating the firm’s policy analysis and focused on mortgage finance, consumer lending, digital assets, cannabis and tax policy. Previously, he was a Research Analyst on the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) Congressional Oversight Panel. Earlier in his career, Boltansky was a Research Analyst at EJF Capital.
At BTIG, he will report directly into Ryan Serwin, CFA, the firm’s Director of Research. “Isaac’s vision and experience guiding investors through the complexities of governmental policies will enhance the existing coverage of our established team of research analysts and strategists,” says Serwin. “We look forward to his analysis and commentary as he identifies the implications of key legislation today and into the future.”
